Dear <<First Name>>,

FDA Approves ECGI Mapping and Ablation System in U.S. 

February 14, 2017: The CardioInsight ECGI system is the first non-invasive mapping system in the world and a most important new development in the treatment of A-Fib.

The ECGI map is a better, more accurate, more complete map than an EP can produce by using a conventional mapping catheter inside the heart. From a patient’s perspective, ECGI reduces both the time it takes to do an ablation and the number of burns a patient receives.

The question for patients is, should you wait on having an ablation till a CardioInsight ECGI mapping system is available at your center? Read my post.

 As always, I welcome your email....Steve Ryan
